Essential Information for Raising Children in the Craft!|
Raising Witches: Teaching the Wiccan Faith to Children
Author: Ashleen O'Gaea
Publisher: New Page Books
Category: New Age/Wicca Level: All
This is the first book that gives parents the means to teach their children Wicca in a more formal fashion than just "having a chat with the kids" around the kitchen table - without losing the spontaneity and natural ways that led you to the craft in the first place!
Featuring a Wiccan curriculum for each of the five age groups from infacy to young adulthood. O'Gaea shows parents how to effectively weave Wicca into a child's natural progression of learning. She presents age-appropriate activities for learning, such as the use of herbs and essential oils to soothe a fussy baby and using totems to instruct toddlers about animals and the natural world. For those interested in creating more formal learning environments, Raising Witches offers a variety of sample lessons, structure, and a prototype for readers who want to develop "Sun Day School" or "Moon School" classes.
Wiccan parents, who wish to raise their children in the Craft but have hesitated because they lacked guidance, will find Raising Witches to be the book they have been searching for. Pagans following other traditions will find it easy to translate Raising Witches into "Raising Asatruar" or "Raising Druids." The book also includes charms, spells, songs, guided meditations with practical ideas for other educational activities.
The combination of sound child-raising ideas, O'Gaea's training as a teacher, and examples from personal and community experience with traditional interpretations of Wiccan principles gives this book exciting, fresh perspectives.
